Healthy oceans

Together we can restore ocean health and secure fish stocks for the future.

LET’S MAKE OVERFISHING HISTORY

Can you imagine a future without fish in the oceans? Today, overfishing and illegal fishing threaten the health of marine ecosystems across the globe.

Fishing provides a livelihood to more than 350 million people and seafood is the main source of protein for one billion people. As the world’s population grows, the strain on the marine environment will increase. We need your help.

BE AN #OCEANHERO

We are working to ensure that fishing can be sustained forever, while maintaining the health of marine ecosystems, contributing to global food security and creating economic prosperity for fishing communities around the world.

 

With your support we can:

•        Increase the number of sustainable fisheries across the world

•        Focus on improving the prospects of developing world fishing communities

•        Inspire even more people to choose sustainable seafood

WHAT’S BEEN ACHIEVED SO FAR?

Through the leadership of our partners so much positive progress has already been achieved. There are now more than 300 fisheries in our program and more than 25,000 MSC certified products on sale globally. McDonald’s, Walmart, Wholefoods and retailers around the globe all source from MSC certified fisheries and as demand grows for MSC ecolabelled seafood, more fisheries are improving their practices and demonstrating they’re fishing sustainably.

Let’s make overfishing history. Be an ocean hero and donate today.
